Three ways we talk about “magnetic field”. • Magnetic Field: Regions surrounding a magnet where another magnet or a moving electric charge will feel a force of attraction or repulsion. • Magnetic Field Lines: exit the north pole and enter the south. • Magnetic Field Strength, B • Vector, Unit: Tesla, T • Named after Nikola Tesla Poles • Law of Poles: Like poles repel, unlike poles attract. • The force between two poles varies as the inverse square of the distance between them. • A single pole (monopole) has not been isolated. Force on a Charged Particle Moving in a Magnetic Field -Magnetic fields only exert forces on moving charged particles or other magnets. • F = |q|(v x B) = |q|v. B sin q • vector cross-product • q is the angle between v and B • F=0 for q =0 or 1800 Remember: Cross Product Using Determinants or Remember: Properties of Cross Products of Unit Vectors ixi=0 jxj=0 kxk=0 ixj=k jxk=i kxi=j To find the direction of the force use the Right Hand Rule For a positive test charge: Thumb v Fingers B Out of palm F The force is always perpendicular to the v. B plane For a negative particle the F is opposite to what it would be for a positive particle (use left hand) Alternate Rule: Right Hand Curl Rule • Curl fingers from v to B F = q(v x B) • F is in the direction of the thumb • Similarly used for the direction of torque (t=r x F) Graphical Representation of the Magnetic Field Vector (Strength), B x field lines pointing into the page ● field lines pointing out of the page Question • Find the direction of the magnetic force acting on the +charged particle entering the magnetic field with a velocity v perpendicular to B. x x V x x x Answer: Upwards x x x What motion will the particle in the previous example undergo (particle entered the Bfield in a direction perpendicular to B? • Circular Motion • Magnetic force will represent the centripetal force • http: //online. cctt. org/physicslab/content/ap plets/Java.

Drawings. htm Does the magnetic force do work? • F is always perpendicular to the displacement • F can change the direction of v not the magnitude • F cannot do work, cannot change KE Mass Spectrometer U.
